The highly anticipated reality show The Real Housewives of Nairobi which premiered last week has broken streaming records for most first day views on Showmax in Kenya.
The first episode of RHONairobi is now the most-watched premiere ever for any title on Showmax in Kenya. The show also topped Twitter trends in Kenya for two days in a row.
Celebrating this milestone, Eugene Mbugua, the executive producer at D&R Studios, the production company behind RHONairobi, said, “The team at D&R Studios is elated to have The Real Housewives of Nairobi become the most-watched launch episode ever in the history of Showmax in Kenya. It’s incredibly gratifying to have the sweat and sleepless nights the cast and crew put in appreciated by the audience.”
He added, “This success is a culmination of years of collaboration between D&R and Showmax to keep putting out compelling content. We cannot wait for everyone to enjoy the rest of the season of RHONairobi.”
Additionally, The Real Housewives of Abuja and The Real Housewives of Durban S3 are also among the top 10 most-watched titles on Showmax in Kenya this week, proof that Kenyans love reality TV.
RHONairobi follows a group of dynamic women – Susan Kaittany, Vera Sidika, Sonal Maherali, Minne Kariuki, and Lisa Christoffersen – as they navigate their lavish lifestyles, relationships and careers in Nairobi.
It is the eighth Real Housewives franchise in Africa, joining other franchises on Showmax like Abuja (RHOAbuja), Durban (RHODurban); Lagos (RHOLagos); Johannesburg; and Cape Town; and international franchises like Dubai (RHODubai) which features Kenyan-born supermodel and businesswoman Chanel Ayan.
